It took five hundred men just to pull each sarsen, plus a hundred more to dash around positioning the rollers. Just think about it for a minute. Can you imagine trying to talk six hundred people into helping you drag a fifty-ton stone eighteen miles across the countryside and muscle it into an upright position, and then saying, 'Right, lads! Another twenty like that, plus some lintels and maybe a couple of dozen nice bluestones from Wales, and we can party!' Whoever was the person behind Stonehenge was one dickens of a motivator, I'll tell you that."
Author: Bill Bryson

Author: Jo Brand

So take my advice: whatever compassion you have, kill it off. You'll thank me for it later. (Xypher)"

19. "Uncanny as something long familiar that feels strangely unfamiliar. The uncanny stands between standard categories and challenges the categories themselves. It is familiar to see a doll at rest. But we don't need to cover its eyes, for it is we who animate it. It is familiar to have a person's expressive face beckon to us, but if we blindfold that person and put them behind a curtain, we are inflicting punishment. The Furby with its expressions of fear and the gendered Nexi with her blindfold are the new uncanny in the culture of computing."
Author: Sherry Turkle
20. "The asymmetry of power that cuteness revolves around is another compelling reminder of how aesthetic categories register social conflict.

But, as Lori Merish underscores, the fact that the cute object seems capable of making an affective demand on the subject—a demand for care that the subject is culturally as well as biologically compelled to fulfill—is already a sign that "cute" does not just denote a static power differential, but rather a dynamic and complex power struggle."
Author: Sianne Ngai

I already…yeah, I already know that, okay?"
Author: Stacia Kane
22. "In my heart I know what kind of person I am, and that's good enough."
Author: Vijay Singh
23. "An ambitious person is one with a mental condition which compels him to work himself to death in order to live."
Author: Vikrant Parsai
